  • COLUMN: February is National Children's Dental Health Month

     In the United States, many children will visit a dentist at some point during their childhood for the treatment of tooth decay (also known as a cavity). According to the Center for Disease Control, tooth decay affects children in the United States more than any other chronic infectious disease. It is five times more common than asthma and seven times more common than hay fever.

    Unfortunately, left untreated, tooth decay can develop into a painful infection causing problems with eating, speaking, playing, and learning.

  • Sunrise Manor: Adopt a resident

     Did you know you can “adopt a resident” at Sunrise Manor Nursing Home?

    We have volunteers who spend one hour a week with one particular resident. We also have volunteers who spend time with different residents more than once a week.

    Reading, playing a game, taking residents for a wheelchair ride down the hall or to a different floor are some of the things residents really enjoy and never get tired of doing.

    Volunteers love to see happy faces on residents because they know “someone cares.”
